Yingluck scores more points than her Govt
The Yingluck government has failed the test, as the 18-month performance score is only 4.87 from the 10-point scale, according to Bangkok University Poll.
Still, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra herself wins 5.42, improving by 0.11 point from the previous survey six months ago.
The poll, covering 1,194 respondents to mark the 18th month in office in February, showed that the government’s highest score, 5.31, lies in the international affairs; 4.92 in internal security; 4.91 in quality of life; 4.65 in law enforcement; and 4.55 in economics. The average score is 0.03 point higher than when the government celebrated the first anniversary.
The prime minister won the highest score from her devotion, 6.04; 5.49 from creativity; 5.48 from honesty; 5.30 from national interests protection; 5.29 in administration; and 4.90 in decisiveness. Asked how her performance is compared to the first day in office, only 24 per cent of respondents said she is better than expected. Eleven per cent viewed she performed worse than expected while 38.6 per cent said she performed accordingly to their expectation.
